Two days short of Sean Preston's first birthday, Jayden James Federline was born on September 12, 2006 in Los Angeles, California. The pressure of a career, being a mother and a wife, while constantly being hounded by the media had taken its toll and on 7 November, Britney filed for divorce from Kevin, citing irreconcilable differences at which time she sought full and complete custody of their two children; while giving Kevin visitation rights. On the following day, Kevin filed a counter suite, seeking both physical and legal custody of the children. The battle finally ended on 30 July, 2007 where it was announced by Britney's attorney that a settlement had been agreed upon, the papers had been signed the marriage was dissolved and the divorced had been legally finalized. Perhaps some of the following information will help you to better understand the type of pressure Britney was undergoing during this time.
In January 2007, Sandra Bridges Covington, Britney's aunt, with whom she had been very close for a number of years succumed to breast cancer. On 16 Feb, 2007, Britney signed herself in at an off-shore drug clinic in Antigua, staying there for less than twenty-four hours. The following night, for no apparent reason at all, Britney went to a haircutting studio in Tarzan, California where she subsequently removed all her hair with a pair of clippers.
